An introduction to U.S. Animal Research Center Livestock Operations

A preview of their seasonal livestock videos

  • A USDA Agricultural Research Service facility with the mission to develop scientific information and new technology to solve high-priority problems for the U.S. beef, sheep, and swine industries.
    • Working in collaboration with the University of Nebraska and land-grant universities in the U.S., the Center focuses on studies to increase production efficiency while maintaining a lean, high-quality, safe product.
  • The Center is similar to a large ranch and feedlot with 8000 cows and 6400 head feedyard and confronts similar challenges as most beef producers in Nebraska.
  • With the goal of sharing experiences and management practices with beef producers in Nebraska, USMARC is working with the Nebraska Cattlemen to produce and share seasonal videos ̶ covering practices and other useful tips of information on cattle management.

It is important we hear from you about topics of interest for these videos!
